About the session

A session on succeeding with mob programming, delivering high quality in an environment with tight constraints and short deadlines. 

When you have a newly formed remote team that has to deliver a system in a high stakes environment – including short deadlines, high visibility (especially for failure), limited knowledge of some of the technologies to use, and some hard security and accessibility constraints – remote mob programming might not be at the top of your list of methods to use. Yet, this is what we did to deliver successfully, and to high-quality standards, one of the backend systems used by the COVID-19 app – the covid app used in England and Wales.

In this talk, Giovanni will share some lessons learned (warts and all) on how remote mob programming helped them achieve their very challenging goals, learning a lot in the process.

Themes:
Mob Programming, Teamwork, Agile Development, Quality
